Intelligent Design

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

According to the theory of intelligent design (ID), it is possible to infer from empirical evidence that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause rather by than unguided processes. Although design arguments have a venerable history, the “ID movement,” as it is sometimes called, is quite recent.

ID is not a substitute for ignorance. If we don’t know the cause of something that does not mean it was designed. When we make design inferences—and all of us make them every day—we do so on the basis of evidence; the more evidence, the more reliable the design inference.

Since intelligent design relies on scientific evidence rather than on Scripture or religious doctrines, it is not biblical creationism. Intelligent design makes no claims about biblical chronology, and biblical creationists have clearly distinguished their views from ID. A person does not even need to believe in God to infer intelligent design in nature.

ID does not claim that design must be optimal; something may be designed even if it is flawed.  ID does not deny the reality of variation and natural selection; it just denies that those phenomena can accomplish all that Darwinists claim they can accomplish.

I am an Intelligent Design (ID) advocate.  I go further than many of the leading ID scientists, in that I will state unequivocally that the ultimate intelligent designer is the one and only God of creation.  This is not the forum to discuss God – that is at www.iamnotnatheist.wordpress.com .  if you want to find out about me, try: www.larrythecontrarian.wordpress.com .  Leave a comment on any of them.  I generally answer within 48 hours.

Why Intelligent Design.  From the Oxford Dictionary: the theory that life, or the universe, cannot have arisen by chance and was designed and created by some intelligent entity.  From Wikipedia: Intelligent design (ID) is the pseudoscientific view that “certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.”  Can you detect a built in bias between the two.  If so continue- if not go somewhere else https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCwIVH0qHLk

    1. Thank you, I am sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I was out of town for a few days on family business. Please feel free to read and all of the blog postings and my other blogs. Tell your friends, I enjoy a good debate/ discussion and am happy to answer questions that anyone has.

  1. Thanks for writing this. I really feel as though I know so much more about this than I did before. Your blog really brought some things to light that I never would have thought about before reading it. You should continue this, Im sure most people would agree youve got a gift.

  2. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!

    1. You just decide what you want to write about, and then research it and start writing. I keep each article I am writing in a separate folder so I place all links to articles, images and edits of the post in that folder. When done, I post it.

  3. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Sorry you are having trouble. It is generally due to the server of my ISP. We were in severe thunderstorms at the dime you posted. We received 2 3/4 inches rain overnight. Try again soon and hopefully the images download better.

  4. Immediately after researching a couple of posts
    in your site now, and I actually love your way of blogging.
    I saved it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back
    soon. Pls check out my web page too and let me know what you think.

  5. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Very useful info specifically the last part 🙂 I care for such information a lot.
    I was looking for this particular information for a very long
    time. Thank you and best of luck.

  6. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making
    a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. Thank you for every other great article. Where else may anyone get
    that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing?
    I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the
    look for such info.
